Workshop on PDE and related topics

Time and location:

16.-30. September 2016, Department of mathematics, TU Chemnitz


We will have several long-term guests whose visiting periods will overlap during a small workshop.


Due to an event, it might not be easy to find accomodation during the time in Chemnitz.

Here, you will find some useful information on how to come to the departement, on hotels etc. We also encourage you to check on portals such as airbnb.

Talks and abstracts

Jussi Behrndt: Dirichlet-to-Neumann maps and the spectral data of Schrödinger operators, Monday, 19 September, 14:00, Location: Reichenhainer Str. 41, Room 705

Abstract: In this talk we discuss how the spectral data of selfadjoint Schrödinger operators on bounded or unbounded domains can be described with an associated Dirichlet-to-Neumann map. In particular, a characterization of the isolated and embedded eigenvalues, the corresponding eigenspaces, as well as the continuous and absolutely continuous spectrum in terms of the limiting behaviour of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map is obtained. The results are natural multidimensional analogs of classical facts from singular Sturm-Liouville theory and can also be viewed as mild uniqueness results in the context of the classical Calderon problem.

Dennis Borisov: Initial length scale estimates for waveguides with small random perturbations

Abstract: We consider a waveguide with small random perturbation. The waveguides is modeled by an infinite multi-dimensional layer, in which Schroedinger operator subject to Dirichlet or Neumann condition is considered. In the waveguide we choose a periodic lattice which splits the waveguide into a family of periodicity cells. To each of such cells, we associated a random variable and assume that all random variables are independent and identically distributed. The perturbations are described by an abstract symmetric operator acting in each of the periodicity cells and depending on a parameter. As a parameter, we choose a random variable associated with a cell and this variable is multiplied by a global small parameter. We consider two main cases assuming that the described random perturbation shifts the bottom of the unperturbed spectrum up or down. In both cases we establish
an initial length scale estimate for our model. General results are accompanied by examples of particular perturbations, both new and studied before.

Reinhard Stahn: Optimal energy decay in a 1D viscoelastic boundary damping model for the wave equation


Mohamad Haidar: On the non-relativistic limit for the semi-linear Klein-Gordon equation

Abstract: We extend an iterative fast-slow  construction, which was already used for a class of singularly perturbed ODEs,  to be applied on the semi-linear Klein-Gordon equation.  We construct an approximate system for the slow motion, whose nonlinear part is  an asymptotic series in $\epsilon$  with coefficient functions recursively defined, up to a small remainder with respect to $\epsilon$. We prove that the   solutions of the slow systems shadow solutions of the Klein-Gordon equation at the corresponding order over  a finite interval of time.
